Our Detox team can also help you shed unwanted pounds by guiding you through our Master Weight-Loss Cleanse program.
And we do it all from our salon-style lounge in San Diego, a comfortable, casual environment that strives to provide a spa-like experience with every visit.

Linda Hecht, Raw Food Instructor
Linda entered the raw food world in 1994 with her visit to OHI -the Optimum Health Institute in San Diego, a preeminent world class healing organization based on the philosophy and work of Anne Wigmore using raw food and additional modalities to cleanse and thus realign and rebalance the body. After becoming certified in the program she later served two extended stints as a working guest and then joined the teaching/management staff in 2005 where she managed the raw teaching kitchen, taught all the related classes in that room, and others as well.
As a facilitator, she is well versed in raw food preparation, equipment, kitchen setup and ancillary areas including sprouting, fermented foods, organic gardening, to name a few. Always getting high scores for her teaching skills, her classes are fun and at the same time highly interesting and most informative. She is a wealth of knowledge.
Additionally, she ran the OHI volunteer program for 5 years, managing groups as large as 24 at times.
Linda enjoys design work – has done remodeling and design projects and continues to do so.
In addition to her interest in raw food, she has practiced yoga for many years and is a graduate of Continuum, an exotic movement studio in L.A. She enjoys gardening, loves to dance and sing and just have a lot of fun.
Lauren Venosta, Certified Nutritionist
Please welcome Lauren Venosta-our new in-house nutritionist. Lauren is available for private consultations and offers affordable options for her clients. Please call for details or to make an appointment.
Lauren experienced early on the difference between health and debilitating illness. After learning as a teen that she has Celiac disease and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, and living a life that most would consider healthy, she was hospitalized for Toxic Shock Syndrome. When her healing stalled and doctors had no answers, she took her health and future into her own hands and began researching holistic nutrition. She transformed her health and knows firsthand the exhilaration of true wellness.
Lauren holds a Bachelors of Science in Foods and Nutrition from San Diego State University and is in the process of earning a Holistic Health Certification from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York.
Lauren’s focus is on the power of food and how it can help or harm the body. Drawing on her education and her own extensive research, she will help you create a completely personalized roadmap that suits your unique body, lifestyle, preferences and goals.
